1717. The last generation from May 14 1948

Jesus stated in Matt. 24:32-35 that the generation that sees the fig tree putting forth leaves will see the events just before the end of the age. We know that the fig tree is Israel and thus the rebirth of Israel as a nation on May 14th 1948 is the fig tree putting off leaves and the beginning of the one generation count, i.e. the generation alive at this point in time would not all have died by the time that all the end time events are fulfilled, they are therefore the last generation.

Figure 1. Israel is represented by a fig tree, which thus blossomed or was reborn on May 14 1948.

32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that [e]it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. (Matt. 24:32-35)

The fig tree is identified as Israel in Hosea 9:10:

“I found Israel
Like grapes in the wilderness;
I saw your fathers
As the firstfruits on the fig tree in its first season.
But they went to Baal Peor,
And [
b]separated themselves to that shame;

The fig tree did not flourish again until Israel began to exist as a nation on May 14 1948. Then, according to Dan. 9:24-27, the last 7 years begin 7 weeks or 49 years after the command to restore Jerusalem.

24 Seventy [e]weeks are determined
For your people and for your holy city,
To finish the transgression,
[f]To make an end of sins,
To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy,
And to anoint [g]the Most Holy.
25 “Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem
Until Messiah the Prince,
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
The [h]street shall be built again, and the [i]wall, Even in troublesome times. (Dan. 9:24-25)

The Messiah or Jesus came 62 weeks after the command to rebuild Jerusalem, and the false messiah, the son of perdition, or Antichrist, comes 7 weeks or 49 years after the command to restore Jerusalem, which was given on June 28th 1967, right after the 6 day war. This means that the last week started in 2016, at which time Israel was 68 years old as 2016 -1948 = 68, and that therefore everything will be finished 7 years after that or when Israel is 75 years old.
Now, one generation lasts between 70 and 80 years according to Psalm 90:10:

10 The days of our lives are seventy years;
And if by reason of strength they are eighty years,
Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow
; (Ps. 90:10)

Thus, all things ending when Israel is 75 years old or in 2023 is exactly as would be expected.

Figure 2. Timing of events during the tribulation week or last 7 years of the age, as determined from the scriptures [Article 1677: Imminent rapture and end of Tribulation and Article 1694: Timing of the rapture: April 25th to May 1st]. Everything is set to end in 2023.

The one event that is not yet known when it is set to occur, exactly, is the rapture, but it is likely to occur between now and May 1st 2020. Since the resurrection of the 2 witnesses, which then coincides with God’s judgment on Satan’s current system of operation, i.e. the internet [Article 1716: The two witnesses and God’s judgment on the internet] is an important event, it is possible that the end or gathering of the elect occurs after a period of 21 days following this event, although there can be no certainty about this; 21 days is simply a likely waiting period, which is scriptural because Daniel waited 21 days. In the case that this is indeed the waiting period, then we would expect the rapture to occur on April 29th 2020 and the gathering of the elect would occur on October 11th 2023.

We read about the end in Rev. 11, after the 2 witnesses are resurrected and God executes judgment on the internet, which is described as the second woe, after which comes the third owe, which is described as coming quickly or soon after:

11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. 12 And [e]they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. 13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly. (Rev. 11:11-14)

So the third woe comes quickly or soon after the second woe, which then signals the end:

15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The [f]kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (Rev. 11:15)

Hence, the end comes when the seventh trumpet sounds. This is then when Israel or God’s elect are gathered. The 7 last plagues occur after that, falling on those who are left on the earth. But the third woe or the blowing of the seventh trumpet seems to be when the time of Jacob’s trouble ends.
In conclusion, Israel is the fig tree that blossomed by being reborn as a nation on May 14 1948, and Israel was 68 years old when the last week or 7 year period of this age, also known as the tribulation or the time of Jacob’s trouble began, in 2016, so that Israel will be 75 years old when it all is set to end in 2023.
